Construction Professionals Skillnet, the leading provider of skills programmes for the construction industry in Ireland, has announced the launch of its 2023 “Return with Confidence” programme, aimed at upskilling workers who have left the construction industry for various reasons and helping them re-enter the industry.

The 2023 programme, which commences on May 15th, is open to those who have left the construction industry. The programme is designed to provide participants with the necessary skills and knowledge to return to the industry with confidence and is delivered virtually.

“We understand that many people have left the construction industry due to a range of circumstances, and we are committed to helping them return with confidence and succeed in their careers,” said Liz Carroll, spokesperson for Construction Professionals Skillnet. “The ‘Return with Confidence’ programme will provide participants with the essential skills and support they need to excel in the construction industry and secure employment.”

The programme will cover a range of topics, including Job Finding Skills, Soft Skills and industry-specific software, among others. Participants will also network with industry professionals and receive one-to-one career mentoring and support in addition to a placement in one of the businesses signed up to support the programme.

The ‘Return with Confidence’ programme has limited places available and is subject to eligibility criteria. Interested parties are encouraged to apply as soon as possible to secure their place. The prior programme in 2022 saw several of the participants obtaining permanent contracts within the industry following their placements as part of the programme.
